Quote of the Day: Clue

Wadsworth: The game’s up, Scarlet. There are no more bullets left in that gun.

Miss Scarlet: Oh, come on, you don’t think I’m gonna fall for that old trick?

Wadsworth: It’s not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the Study; two for the chandelier; two at the Lounge door and one for the singing telegram.

Miss Scarlet: That’s not six.

Wadsworth: One plus two plus two plus one.

Miss Scarlet: Uh-uh, there was only one shot that got the chandelier. That’s one plus two plus *one* plus one.

Wadsworth: Even if you were right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus *two* plus one plus one.

Miss Scarlet: Okay, fine. One plus two plus one… Shut up! The point is, there is one bullet left in this gun and guess who’s gonna get it!

Happy 72nd Birthday to Tim Curry!!!
